After clocking up millions of sales and gaining widespread critical acclaim, the Apple iPhone 5 has been the most successful smartphone model to date for the California based manufacturer. Of course, the success of this device has led to plenty of speculation about what Apple has in store for their next instalment of its iconic smartphones series.
The most prominent rumour suggests that the next iPhone model will be iPhone 5S. Of course, given Apple's previous releases this certainly makes sense. Following the launch of the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 3GS was released, with the iPhone 4S following the launch of the iPhone 4. Although there has been speculation that a new budget model will be launched, or even an iPhone 6, the majority of sources believe that the iPhone 5S will be next up.
GSM Arena has recently reported on a set of leaked images of iPhone 5S components. The components suggests that the iPhone 5S will have an almost identical design to the current version. Of course, as was the case with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S, it is likely that the device will have the same appearance as the iPhone 5, with most upgrades based on internal components and software.
The components in the images suggest that the device will have the same design and measurements as the iPhone 5, with the layout of the home button, sensors and front and rear cameras being identical to those on the iPhone 5. The website reports that the only noticeable difference on the images is a redesigned flex cable which feeds the display and digitizer, hinting to changes made to the internal components.
Like previously upgraded iPhone models, we expect the iPhone 5S to run the latest version of iOS, which will of course be the recently announced iOS 7 update. It is also expected that the phone may see the addition of an upgraded camera and a more powerful processor. Of course, we will not know for sure until Apple officially announces the device, and it is widely believed that this will take place in the summer.
Hopefully, there will not be much longer to wait until Apple
makes the announcement, so we will be sure to keep you posted when we hear
more, and bring you the best iPhone 5 deals.
